A SAHM that reads and reviews romance (all sub genres of romance), Urban Fantasy & Sci-Fi, sometimes Horror, and YA (some sub genres of it).
I've been reading since I was my oldest daughter's age….thanks to R.L. Stine & Christopher Pike…and later on thanks to Anne Rice. Those 3 authors changed my life and I have been obsessed with reading ever since.
Gone to Her Grave is the second novella in the Rogue River series by Kendra Elliot and Melinda Leigh, and in this novella we have different characters telling the story. This time it's Melinda Leigh picking up the story and she has Stevie's sister Carly and her husband (she's separated from) Seth taking over what is happening in Solitude, Oregon.
Carly's a social work and she's determined to find out the truth behind one of the teens being falsely accused of dealing a new drug that is going around Solitude. She knows he had nothing to do with it, but everyone else think he has. Carly's estranged husband, Seth ends up taking charge of the investigation and wants to help prove his innocence as well.
Carly and Seth will do anything to find out who the real dealer is in Solitude, and they may end up getting caught in the crossfire of what truly is going on. They may even be able to reconcile their marriage, as long as Seth can handle what Carly does. I can understand Seth being very protective of Carly, but I have to agree he needs to lighten up a bit. Carly is one determined character who just wants to help out families, especially children.
Melinda Leigh did an amazing job continuing the story with two different characters and also including the other characters too. It was easy to follow along with Carly and Seth and become attached to these two, just like I did with Kendra's novella. I'm determined just like the characters are to find out what is really going on in Solitude, which is a town that is supposed to be peaceful. Things are coming forward that are making even the characters question close people they thought had nothing to do with the drugs in town.
I give this novella 5 full moons and highly recommend this series to readers that are looking for a quick suspenseful read during these days that are getting colder. The first three are already out, and the last one will be out soon. If you are one of those readers that don't like waiting, you won't have to wait for much longer. I do recommend reading these in order. You'll understand what is happening and you'll get to enjoy learning more about the characters by following along.
I received a complimentary copy of the book from Netgalley via the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
